i am thinking about setting up a dual screen pc. does bz have any special support for it?

if i do set it up i am also thinking about havin one screen with an observer client following my tank, like 3rd person on 1 screen and first person on the other. will this be counted as cheating?

I don't believe there is any support for two screens in bz; at least I've never found it.

I have always had to disable my second monitor when playing BZ... if your mouse travels to the other screen BZ minimizes automatically :(

I'd say: Try it.

Its different on each system.
I had a multiscreen with a secound graphic card, and the only Problem was the 3D Support of DirectX.
Maybe, that has been fixed.
But i could play games on on and i could check the CPU usage on the other one.
But if the game changes the resolution, your secound screen will change his one, too.
